I have a ton of EML files I was able to export from mail.app that I need to convert into PDF files. How do I do this?

If you get them back in Mail app, you can easily print them to PDF from there.

Put them all in a Mail folder then do a command-a to select all. Then command-p to bring up a a print dialogue. In the print dialogue click PDF in the bottom left then select save as PDF. This will put all the messages in one PDF.

I don't want to put them all in 1 PDF and its communication over a 1 yr period.. so its a ton of PDFs that needs to be created. Is there a way to do this all at once?

Hmmm... so you want each message in its own PDF? Off the top of my head, I can't think of a non-manual way to do that. You might look in Automator and see if you can cobble something together that way.
